Fascination of the Amalfi Coast: Positano, Italy

2 Feb , 2013  


Positano may be one of Italy’s most luxurious and romantic vacation destinations, but to us its plain beauty and traditional architecture rank the highest.

The town of Positano showcases fabulous coastal views on the renowned Amalfi Coast in Campania, Italy. The picturesque settlement is suspended vertically on the face of a cliff and is popular for its artists and writers.

The best way to reach Positano is by bus or by boat. This is because the road that leads to Positano is exceedingly difficult to drive on, and the parking spots are extremely limited, although some hotels do offer parking.

The town can be reached by bus from either Salerno or Sorrento, with the help of the train from Naples and by ferry from either Amalfi or Sorrento.

Positano is also known as a pedestrian town due to its thousands of avenues, stairways and hidden corners that are prosperous with the fragrance of mystery. The small town has many sophisticated gift stalls and retail stores and is acknowledged by tourists as an appealing fashion brand on its own. When around the Amalfi coast, try out the popular “Limoncello”, an alcoholic drink made from lemon.

Best time to visit would be during the spring season that falls between March and June, due to the mild climate.
